Spiritualizing the text

“Spiritualizing takes place when the preacher discards the earthly, physical, historical reality the text speaks about and crosses the gap with a spiritual analogy of that historical reality….Spiritualizing is also a bridge that fails to bear the weight of the text as is evident both in the discarding of the physical reality and in the transfer of only one or two elements of the text.”  Sidney Greidanus
